Owner description: The Two Oceans Aquarium is a window into the spectacular oceans surrounding the southern African coast. Through displays ranging from the small and almost fantastical Knysna seahorses, to sea turtles and shoals of shimmering fish, the aquarium holds wondrous discoveries around every corner. Come face-to-face with giant spider crabs and have an adventurous tactile experience at the Touch Pool. Be sure to visit the I&J Ocean Exhibit, with its 9m long window, and 10m long full tunnel. Qualified divers can also make use of the opportunity to dive in this exhibit with shoals of fish and turtles. The Jelly gallery is sure to mesmerize and enthrall.

So well laid out and organised. Easy to move around and read the informative displays. Wonderful exhibits and displays.
Saw the fish and penguin feeding sessions, both very informative and entertaining.
Great for families. Loved it.
Toilets, refreshments, shop. A cool and comfortable respite from the hot weather outside.

Thank Beeteeyork

This is definitely a great place to visit with kids. It is very educational with a good variety of sea life. My little one loved the tank with the sea turtle as it took a nap right next to the glass! I loved the Jelly Gallery.

Fantastic aquarium, the highlight being the Sand Tiger Sharks. Such a great variety of sea life. The Kelp forest was closed unfortunately but it didn't effect the experience.

I took 2 9 year olds and they had hours of fun running from window to window looking at all the sea creatures. Just wish there was more for them to touch in the touch pool.

Great place to go to see a variety of sea-life and the great work they do rehabilitating some of the wildlife as they go. Great if you get there for feeding time of both the big fish and sharks, with the staff being very informative. Well worth a visit if your looking to escape the heat for a couple of hours.
